was try to create a new sense of urgency to see if there's a chance to put the big deal back together that he and speaker boehner were close to having this deal last week. but in many ways, this speech was almost oh post mortem, almost setting up the blame game for the fact that no big deal is going to happen. and no matter what happens here at the end of the day, the debt ceiling is going to go up. but nobody is going to be happy about the deal. i can tell you this, ann, i had a bunch of democrats that said to me, would have been a good speech to give two weeks ago. >> i know that he called for public activism, so much so that we hear the capitol hill websites were crashing last night because so many people were trying to e-mail their representatives. it looks like he spooked main street, jim? will he spook also wall street? >> no, not at all. wall street is calm. the markets are looking good today. we had a blip down in the indicators between 9:0 and about 9:20. they came right back. no one is buying the panic, the sky-rocketing interest rates scenario. >> that said, hedge funds are
